For more than twenty years in private practice, I have provided evidence-based psychological services that are proven effective for adolescents and adults.
Utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapies and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, each treatment plan is personalized by incorporating specific goals that are meaningful to the client. Treatment focuses on identifying and implementing the change needed to move toward a more satisfying life. To facilitate that work, I am accessible between sessions for phone coaching.
Earlier in my career, working and volunteering in a broad range of settings served to provide me with a breadth of experience that informs my work today. For example, after earning my doctoral degree from New York University, I taught psychology at the undergraduate and graduate levels, provided clinical supervision for psychologists-in-training, offered bereavement counseling for hospice programs and worked for several non-profit and public sector mental health organizations. I’ve worked on rape hot lines and served for more than a decade on the Board of Directors of My Sisters’ Place, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending violence and abuse in the family. In addition, I’ve consulted to private corporations and employee assistance programs offering on-site crisis management and debriefings.
I keep my skills fresh by maintaining memberships in psychology associations at the national, state and local levels as well as the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies. Continuing education and consultation with colleagues also keep my skills current. I feel fortunate to do what I love for a living.
